“Surprisingly Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is a hidden gem! Go to the 50th floor conservatory and get a free audio head set. This helps you to know what you are looking at. They even have a kid's version so the kid's can have fun. There are some discount tickets around town so check into that before you pay at the door. Tickets are $15 per person at the door.

“great location. many different branches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The food court had many choices. The place has a lot of branches off the main area. The directory was hard to understand for many visitors.

“Shopping and the Cheesecake Factory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We could have spent an entire day shopping here. Too bad we only had a short bit of time. I'm sure we will be back.

“Skywalk a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Don't leave Boston without a visit up to the Skywalk. There are audio headsets, and it really gives an interesting perspective and worthwhile overview of Boston. Even my husband who doesn't usually like such things loved it.

“The Pru”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Omg! Did I love this place. One of the best, beautiful and complete malls I've ever stepped into. The decorations, the architecture, the gardens (yes, the gardens!), everything was beautifully planned. I really recommend the shops.
